Fairchild Semiconductor Highlights "Source-to-System" Power Efficiency at APEC 2013

During APEC 2013, March 17-21, 2013, in booth 209 at the Long Beach Convention Center, Long Beach, Calif., Fairchild Semiconductor puts the focus on engineers, and invites visitors to share their design challenges with power experts to find solutions that support their overall success. One area of focus at the show is on motor control applications, where designers are now moving away from the traditional universal, or AC motor design, to a more sophisticated brushless DC (BLDC) motor or permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) design. However, choosing either of these methods can be challenging if the designer has limited access to advanced, complex motor control algorithms. This can lead to significant spending of research and development resources and longer design times. To help designers with these cost and software burdens, Fairchild developed the FCM8531 analog and digital integrated motor controller. The FCM8531 is a tailored configurable solution complete with user guides, reference designs, and evaluation boards that help motor control designers shorten time-to-market and minimize software design efforts. Other exhibits and demonstrations available for discussion include: Lighting DC-DC Conversion Industrial Power Power Supply Motor Control Automotive Silicon Carbide Power over Ethernet Renewable Energy
